Roads Not Traveled

I was formally offered a position in Washington DC late last week, and this morning I formally turned it down. It is a wonderful job. It would have been perfect for me, and I would have been able to make a significant contribution for the employer. But the constraints of family made it too difficult to make it happen. I'm sad about it.

The Aran sweater for Baby L is about 70% finished. Especially today, I will hold close the credo of Elizabeth Zimmerman, the matriarch of knitting: "Knit on with confidence and hope, through all crises."

I for one am glad you are staying put -- for selfish reasons! But you are such a wonderful person, I'm sure you have bigger things coming up, including the wonders of your family!

I'm sorry that you couldn't take the job. What you are doing does make a big difference even if it doesn't seem like it sometimes.

I'm sorry you couldn't make the job work, but I'm sure something else will come up. What is that saying? When a door closes a window opens?
